Take a Virtual Boat Tour
Join the Progressive Diners on Wednesday, October 4, for a Waterkeepers Virtual Boat Tour. The tour is a creation of the Kootenai Environmental Alliance (KEA). The KEA offered these educational boat tours throughout the summer. These tours were free to the public. None the less, they offered an invaluable opportunity to learn about this program. By exposing the public to their work, the tours gave individuals a chance to learn about the history of Coeur d’Alene lake and the work of the KEA. The unique access also allowed participants to experience the different aspects of our lake. Most importantly, the tours showed individuals how to help with the Waterkeepers mission to ensure that it stays “swimmable, drinkable and fishable.” So now, we invite you to take the tour for yourself. RSVP by contacting Kristi or Jan.

They achieve this goal through “enforcement, community action, education, restoration and advocacy.”
